HDH107 Appalling Apothecary using Smeared Ink images

Here is my project for HDH 107 Challenge: Appalling Apothecary:

I used a random dungeon background that I found online to borrow.  Sorry...I don't remember where it was from.  If I did, I'd definitely give the creator props! All the digi images are from Smeared Ink.  I used the whole "Mad Science" digi set (sans the sentiments), the Calypso digi single, and the brain in the jar is from Smeared Ink's "Babies of the Damned" digi set.  The random eyeballs are from the babies of the damned set also.  I took the eyeball rattle for the demon tots and cut off the rattle part leaving an awesome eye to color.  That's what I love about can modify them to suit your taste.  I could erase a portion of the mad scientist to give him a crew cut if I wanted.  The bottles, flasks, and test tubes in the set can be stretched, shrunk, or widened to fit any item of your choosing.  I love the flexibility of digis!

Anywho...check out HDH...they have bad-azzed challenges every Monday.

I used two Smeared Ink images in my project for today.  I used Anatomy 101-Arm Bones and one of the zombies from the Zombie Headshots digi stamp set.  I colored my wicked zombie digitally and used the arm bones to make a frame.  To get more inspiration and details about this week's challenge, head over to the Smudgy Antics Blog.

I used "Corneleus" from Smeared Ink's Goth Fairies set.  He is colored digitally and the papers and background images are digital as well.  I kept my project simple so the beauty of this image could shine. 

 Here is a picture of the whole set:

Smeared and Smudged Member Blog Hop

It's that time again! Time for the Smeared and Smudged member blog hop.

The theme this month was Pieces and Parts. We were to use at least two stamp or digi images combined to make a "new" image or focal point on our projects.

Here is my creation:


I had so much fun with this!  I took two of the werewolves from Smeared Ink's "Part of the Pack" digi stamp set and made a two headed werewolf!  Sooooo creepy!  The background is an ATC collage sheet from Itkupilli and the garbage can digi is from Make it Crafty Stamps.  The sentiment is a digi from Smeared Ink's "Part of the Pack" stamp set. 

I merged my images in photoshop and moved the heads around a bit until I got the placement I liked.  I digitally colored the two headed werewolf as well as the garbage can and assembled my card in photoshop.  It was a lot of work, but I love the end result!

Here is the blog roll:

Be sure to hop around the blogs and leave the gals some love.

Metal Mania with Smudgy Antics

The challenge this week on Smeared Ink's challenge blog, Smudgy Antics, is "Metal Mania".  Go to the challenge blog for details.

Here is my take on the challenge:

I used Smeared Ink's "cracked heart" image from the "Heart Wings" digi stamp set.  The image is colored with copic markers, trimmed, and mounted on actual metal tape, then trimmed again.  Because the backing is metal, I was able to bend the wings a bit for extra depth.  I took another strip of metal tape and embossed it with my cuttle bug and dripped random colors of alcohol ink onto it.  Once dry, I mounted the metal tape onto black cardstock and further mounted my creation on additional cardstock.
